    I went trout fishing yesterday in what's said to be a hot spot but with no luck. I've been told though that the fish there were stocked, so is it possible to fish out a trout stream with stocked trout.

    yes but they have gotten smart since they watch their friends get pulled out of the water.

      Even if the fishermen hit the river as the stocking truck pulls away, then it is possible that they removed MOST of the stocked fish, but certainly not all of them. Some of the fish got hooked but escaped, or they broke the line, or they were released after being netted. These fish will stop feeding for a few days, cuz their mouth hurts! In the meantime, they'll move around and find a sheltered spot where they don't feel so exposed. They may even discover that there's food drifting by them all the time (bugs & whatnot). In other words, they will very quickly discover what it means to live and feed like a wild trout. To catch those fish, you're just going to have to get more creative.
